Overview


He made her an offer she couldn't refuse—but did she ever try!

Jake Hartman's heli-skiing operation in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies has been hugely successful. But because of the major outlays he now wants to make, he needs a capital infusion. A bank loan is a nonissue—Jake's not keen on debt. But a silent partner would do the trick.

Widowed Maureen Shannon, eldest of the Shannon sisters, has just moved back to the sleepy town of Canmore, hoping that slow-paced living will help mend her deteriorating relationship with her twelve-year-old daughter. Jake's proposal sounds good.

    fine conclusion to C.J. Carmichael¿s attractive trilogy

    Though he has a wife and child, Rod acts more like a daredevil teenager who simply won¿t grow up. His attitude forces his spouse Maureen Shannon to make all the difficult parenting and economic decisions that leads to the alienation between mother and daughter. Rod takes the ultimate plunge of irresponsibility when he dies dashing down the Andes Mount Aconcagua. Following his death Maureen worries about her child¿s health, poor performance in school, and the need for them to spend more quality time together. Holly fails to appreciate the stability Maureen provides to her. Maureen fails to appreciate Holly¿s grieving her father¿s loss, ignoring the one-year anniversary of his death. A desperate Holly relocates them to her hometown of Canmore to be near her family. <P>To keep his business Grizzly Peaks afloat, Jake Hartman needs capital and has learned Maureen is a prospective investor. He tries to persuade her to invest in his heli-skiing business, but she remains reluctant because she believes he is just a Rod clone. As they fall in love, she sees his caring compassionate nature and he notices her vulnerability, but will she reach out to Jake? <P>The final Shannon Sisters novel, A LASTING PROPOSAL, answers the questions from the two previous books while providing the audience with an entertaining romance. Maureen is an interesting person who learns that caring responsible supermoms can have fun with their children too. Jake is a goop (gorgeous, honest, and often pitiful) that readers will either laugh at or smack. Still Maureen¿s tale is a fine conclusion to C.J. Carmichael¿s attractive trilogy. <P>Harriet Klausner
